Oh great, just what I need - another clever internet shopping tool.

I meant the Amazon thing, Mark, not you.

I do this, too, but not for anything practical.

But yeah, I like how it's a good way to both save and spend money simultaneously.

That cart is really, really nice. It went together very easily...lots of screws but it's designed with threaded inserts so there aren't nuts to deal with {INSERT JOKE HERE}.

Every piece fit together accurately and obviously. Every part had a sticker with a clear, simple part #, which way is up and which way is the front. Instructions and illustrations were in clear English. It was absolutely the best-designed assembly I've ever dealt with.

I'm not joking here: I'm going to make it a point to write the manufacturer to give them a pat on the back for doing it SO right and I'm going to write a review on Samsclub.com (I've never bothered writing a review though I live on Amazon).

Further, I'm going to buy four more of these and use them as a base for a new workbench/assembly table.

No kidding, I can't believe how good these are, and at the price, they're a steal!

Believe me, I'm aware of how much more charm it would have if I built the cabinets myself with Maple-front drawers and dovetail joints, etc...

But the reality is, I have a "to-do" and "to-build" list that's 50 items long. I'm not looking for projects to build even now, and when the whole refinanced mortgage "rebuild the kitchen, rebuild the bathroom, rebuild the basement, redo the whole house plumbing, redo electric work, redo the landscaping, redo the kitchen floor, redo yadda, redo yadda" happens, I'm going to be inundated to keep up with contractors.

So yes, I would love the charm of "do it myself", but I'm too much of a realist. I could get four of these cabinets assembled in 5 hours and be done with it....except for building a thick Maple top! \:\)

And, by the way, aren't you supposed to be posting photos of some plant stands?

True, but the last two weekends were filled with Jeep work and next weekend looks like it will be filled with lawn and yard work. Of course, now that my big workbench is no longer a big pile of parts, I could probably do a little here and there on some evenings.

One of 3 wood working projects I've every done.



I had some hardwood flooring pieces with flaws that I put to use after using a fan box as a center stand for a year or so.

It's actually solid and well balanced. It doesn't compliment the HG Cherry much but I'm not sure if I want to stain or paint it....as it doesn't distract either and the planks are pre-finished already.

I've also been thinking of trimming the top piece so the VP150 is exactly the same length or slightly longer...
